Recently Rayne team rider Patrick Switzer was recognised by his hometown, Hanover, Ontario, for his accomplishments in longboarding. Shortly after meeting with the town council in Hanover he made it onto the London CTV News! Pretty big stuff from a small town kid.
Over the last 7 years Patrick has done a lot: He's produced two of the most popular longboard series, been Canadian and World Champion, has had a few signature model boards, and finished his degree at BCIT... Just to name a few. We'd say that's a pretty successful career and it's not over yet!
Make sure to check out the news report over at CTV News London.
